“Amateurs wait for inspiration. The rest of us just get up and go to work.” – Chuck Close
Monday morning blues can be very intimidating sometimes. Sometimes I feel low since Sunday afternoon. Not that I hate my work, on the contrary, but there’s something about Monday that is so persistently depressing, don’t you think so? But, as the cliche goes, the show must go on. So, despite a bagful of unwillingness, we still pick that up and set out to work. And that can be the antidote, though we don’t realize it often. Imagine sitting at home on a Monday, doing nothing. The work that you hate to do on Monday is what sees you through the day. Isn’t that amazing?
There are so many things that continue to escape our notice, though it lies right in front of us. The quote is so right. Inspiration is something that will come to you only if you keep your doors open and you can’t do that when you are partying or just out! For a professional, the work they do is good enough to get them out of the Monday morning blues. Another way to get inspired on a Monday morning is to keep a plan ready. If you have a plan of the day’s work-to-do among the papers you carry to office, you’ll be on track to get things done efficiently. You get into the groove easily and before you realize, the rust you accumulated over the weekend is scraped out!
I take a long time to bring myself to write on a Monday morning. There’s that famed writer’s block at the back of my mind, not to mention the thought of the weekend that just whizzed past. It takes a lot of effort to hammer out one good line. I could really do with some of these inspirational quotes. Do you have one that you can share with us? How do you work on a Monday morning? Does it take a lot of effort to settle down? Write to me, you never know, you may end up inspiring someone who’s having a rather bad day in office!
